"What is of man must be reduced to its very lowest measure. All that is inconsistent with entire devotion to Christ’s service must be removed. The more perfect the cleansing and cutting away of all that is of self, the less of surface over which the Holy Spirit is to be spread, so much the more intense can be the concentration of our whole being, to be entirely at the disposal of the Spirit. This is the true circumcision of the heart, the circumcision of Christ. This is the true crucifixion with Christ, bearing about the dying of the Lord Jesus in the body.... Blessed cleansing, God’s own cleansing! How we may rejoice in the assurance that we shall bring forth more fruit."


--Andrew Murray, The True Vine
